Inspiration For Our Daily Christian Walk

With God's divine joy filling our lives, we can rejoice in all life's circumstances. Christ, our Savior and Lord prayed to the Father, that His disciples would have His joy fulfilled in themselves. See His prayer offered up to God (John Chapter 17), as the time drew near, where He would experience betrayal, agony, accusation, crucifixion, resurrection. 

"Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2)

"These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full." (John 15:11)

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4)

In Romans Chapter 12, Paul encourages us to rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation; continuing steadfast in prayer.

Peter in his First Epistle (Chapter 1) writes of joy unspeakable and full of glory.

"The joy of the Lord is your strength." (Nehemiah 8:10)

"You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." ( Psalm 16:11)

All praise and thanks to God who loves us and brought us salvation. He makes His abode with those who love Him, and nothing shall separate us from His everlasting love. 

May the fruit of His joy, and all His fruits, flourish in our lives, by the power of the Holy Spirit. To Him be glory in His church. Amen.
